1997 Chevy Camaro V6 wont start

I have full power to the dash, headlights, radio, etc. The car acts like it is not completely in park when i try to start it. The starter is not getting signal to start. I checked the fuses and relays and i cant find one that is bad. The car doesnt even draw any power when i turn the key to start it. Nothing happends. The car started one week and than the following week it wouldnt start. I cant figure this out. Any advise would be helpful. Thanks

    Try starting in NEUTRAL or jiggling the gearshift while starting to see if the gearshift cutoff switch is out of position

Hold your foot firmly on the brake and turn the key to the start position, then while holding it, slowly move the shift lever. If the car starts in any gear, adjust the neutral safety switch. Or, a bit safer, but not always as accurate, have someone stand behind the car and with the key in run position, put the car in reverse. If lights come on before or after you are in reverse, then you have same problem.

Turns over but won't start

I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

2010 f150 has power but won't crank, have no dash lights but radio works

Could be a stuck starter motor, get a hammer and tap lovingly on the starter housing.. Then give it a try. Failing that the automatic transmission safety lock might be engaged. Move the shifter into gear then back into park and try starting.

Wire and fuse diagram for 1982 berlinetta camaro v8

You may have cooked a fuseable link that powers the key switch.
There are two or three links coming from the large terminal on the starter that feeds some of the circuits.

My 2002 pt cruiser wont starts and it act likes the battery is dead, but it isnt. what could be the problem?

check battery connections1st check all fuses under dash and under hood in the black box. it will have main fuses in the one under the hood. next is the starter itself, with the key on and headlights on, when you turn key to start, do headlights go dim? pointing to bad starter if not. are you sure the transmission is in the park position? have you added a security to your car lately? try manually with a key to lock and unlock the doors. has your car been stored for a long time? the computer may have to be flased by the dealer, cost$85.00 and tow in. hope this helps and thank you for choosing
